I have been following the SSH tutorial, but it hasn’t been working for me.
I made a public key and I put it into the my droplet on the security panel of Digital Oceans.
I checked in .ssh/authorized_keys and the same public key is indeed there. And yet, I can’t secure the SSH connect such that I can use SCP or SSH without a password. I’ve tried many tutorials and debugging articles about this, and I can’t get copy-ssh-id to function with or without -i with changes in config, etc…
is this a common problem? Any ideas?
